The City Manager's mission is to develop a responsive, dynamic, representative local government organization that continuously assesses its purpose and seeks the most effective and efficient techniques and technologies for serving the community.

Government Structure
The City of Brookings operates with the council-manager form of government adopted by a city charter in 1999. This government combines the strong political leadership of elected officials, in the form of the city council, with the professional experience of an appointed city manager. Under this government, the mayor and council are responsible for making policy decisions for the community.

The elected council hires a city manager to implement its policies. The manager serves at the pleasure of the council and has responsibility for preparing the budget, directing day-to-day operations, hiring and firing personnel and serving as the council's chief policy advisor. While carrying out the council's policy decisions, the city manager must provide vision and leadership to the organization.
